It's not a Ford, but I got a truck

Few weeks ago we paid off my wife's Honda Pilot and since we didn't need that money for anything else, she said I could get something if the payment was the same. Errrrr, ok! 2007 Tundra that has just over 67k miles on it. Yes my wife has purple hair.

I actually like those Pilots too, if it's the old style. Best SUV I test drove since my Bronco. I hope the Tundra serves you well. B

purple hair and come **** me boots (I edited that myself, out of respect), you kinky bastard!

Tundra huh? I'll never own another Yota myself... but that's a lot newer setup than mine was. Still... get a fire extinguisher.
On the plus side, a friend of mine has had one for many years, maybe the previous generation though.
Loves it, drives it on long trips all the time and never has any real problems. Hope the same and better for you bud.

After I bought my Barrett last year, I ended up buying Heather a new 4runner. Actually nice trucks I must admit.

My buddy had one of those, traded it for a 4 door F-250 with the 5.4 and still swears the Tundra pulled better.

It belonged to an older guy is what they said, I'm guessing he used it for camping only maybe? We looked online and 07s where going for 17k-19k still with 150k-200k miles on them. We got it for about 24k out the door with a 42k mile warranty

Maybe? I just remember someone posting pix of his wife with purple hair working on her jeep, it had been awhile.

Nice! IIRC those trucks have a TON of room on the inside and the trucks were pretty well researched by Toyota. The engines have lots of pull and the ride is pretty nice. Looked at them a while ago but felt the interior was too big. Other than that I liked them.
